2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee (continued)

Summary

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Grand Cherokee boasts a capable chassis, comfortable interior that's utility useful or fashion friendly, and some of the most efficient powertrains in its class. It offers the off-road capability that mid-size SUVs should offer, along with substantial towing capability. The SRT puts the Germans on notice that there are super-ute alternatives, and this one costs $20,000-$40,000 less. A Laredo E Off-Road is the most Jeep and the one we want most.

G.R. Whale filed this report to NewCarTestDrive.com after his test drives of all versions of the Grand Cherokee near Austin, Texas.
